New sonic impulses…
25 February 2020
Legendary Boston guitar pop band THROWING MUSES led by the fabulous KRISTIN HERSH return with new music after almost 30 years. The new LP called ‘SUN RACKET’
will be out on 22nd May. “A ten-song opus of suitably wrought tales set against a wall of
sound that’s at once calm and ethereal before building into glorious cacophonous crescendos.” Pre-order facilities here.
Frontwoman/songwriter KRISTIN HERSH says about the new LP: “All it asked of us
was to commingle two completely disparate sonic vocabularies: one heavy noise, the other delicate music box. Turns out we didn’t have to do much. ‘Sun Racket’ knew what it was doing and pushed us aside, which is always best. After thirty years of playing together, we trust each other implicitly but we trust the music more”
Here’s lead single ‘DARK BLUE’. It’s a firm stomper driven by a solid beat with a pounding guitar groove, Kristin Hersh characteristic, sensual voice, and a catchy polyphonic chorus. Throwing Muses are back and they rock as never before! Can’t wait for the album!
